Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Friday that he is demanding the White House answer “serious constitutional questions” about whether the administration can order a drone strike on American soil.

“We’re talking about someone eating at a cafe in Boston, or New York, and a Hellfire missile comes raining in on them,” Paul said during an appearance on Fox News. “There should be an easy answer from the administration on this. They should say, ‘Absolutely no, we will not kill Americans in America without an accusation, a trial and a jury.’ ”

The Kentucky senator said he had sent a letter to John Brennan, Obama’s nominee to head the CIA, but had not yet received a response.

“I’ve asked serious questions, serious constitutional questions,” Paul said. “I’ve gotten zero response. And that is sort of the way this administration is treating Congress. The Senate has the right to advise and consent and approve nominees. I’ve not got one word of response from the administration on this.”
